Build Your Own Echo Bay Dory Skiff

SAIL AND ROW IN THE PRETTIEST 12-FOOTER…AN ECHO BAY DORY SKIFF!

FRIDAY NIGHT BBQ ORIENTATION 6PM
SAT-SUN-MON 9:00AM-4:30PM

We will start with a complete kit for this popular 12-foot sail and rowing skiff. By the end of the first day, we will have the sides of the hull pulled together and the start of a boat. As the week continues we will finish the hull exterior, install the interior, and fiberglass the chines. The objective is to build a rowing version of the boat. We can prepare a sailing package for you and, if there is time, get started on the sailing components during class. At the very least, we’ll have a daggerboard trunk installed so we can launch these boats in the Saco River at the end of the workshop!

This is a great class for people who want to build their first boat in an exciting, social setting and with the guidance of expert boatbuilders. You will be ready to go home loaded with great memories and a boat ready to sand and paint. Don’t worry, we will send you home with everything you need to paint and rig your own Echo Bay Dory Skiff.

We will meet Friday evening for a cookout and orientation. Work begins Saturday and ends Monday evening.
